It doesn't matter when you check the split file version into SVN.  But
it's best if the splitting checkin doesn't involve any code changes;
make all code changes in a separate checkin.

By the way, have you been bumping the version number and making a new
release on EmacsWiki every time you checked in code?  You don't have
to.  You can make a release just every few weeks or so.  Also, it's
possible to set things up so that a mail goes to the mailing list
every time you make an SVN checkin.

BTW I like that the version vimpulse.el on EmacsWiki is one big file I
can simply download and install :)
